Arf! Down Boy!
Youve got to marvel at a film that has the chutzpah to reveal its ending at the beginning of the film. But there it is, Tarzan the dog, his handler, and the handlers girlfriend at the police station telling the policeman about their latest adventure and how they captured the bad guys. Knowing this of course, reveals that all the good guys win.
A banker gets robbed by a scheming underworld type and his partners. As a matter of fact, the two main bad guys look so much Alike, I was wondering why the banker didnt recognize his attacker right away when he came back to check on how he was doing. I then realized, OH, it was the OTHER bad guy who did it. Fortunately for us, Tarzan The Wonder Dog smells a crook from a mile away! He even backs away from the bad guy, even before they do anything! He can fight them tooth and nail! Especially when they provide a handy arm to chew on!
Worth noting is the totally unnecessary steeple chases between bathing suit women riding on mens backs.
Oh, and theres fight scenes! All I can say is.. Poor Tarzan!
